Public Works


The maintenance and upkeep of Oak Harbor’s three main parks is overseen by the employees of the Division of Streets, Parks, Buildings and Grounds.

Veterans Memorial Parks is located on Finke Road on the east side of town.  The facilities at the park include 3 little league ball diamonds, one softball diamond with a concession stand, 2 full size basketball courts and 3 half-basketball courts, 2 tennis courts, a sledding hill, roller blade/ice skating rink, a multitude of playground equipment as well as two :”tot lots: for preschool aged children.  There are also two restroom facilities available.

The park has two open air shelter houses with full electric service and lighting.  Both have charcoal grills in very close proximity to them.  The shelter houses can be reserved by calling the Oak Harbor Police Department at (419) 898-2055.  Donations are accepted.

Also located in Veterans Park is a grove of oak tress in honor of past mayors of the village.

Adolphus Kraemer Park is located on Church Street near the Municipal Building and Post Office.  The theme of this park reverts back to the good old days of a public square where the former town hall stood. 

The log cabin was relocated from the Ottawa County Fairgrounds.  This project was led the Oak Harbor Lions Club.

There are picnic tables and benches so that you can sit and relax and enjoy some quiet time.

Flat Iron Park gets its name from its shape.  Located at the west entrance of the village, it is bordered by Water, Main and Toussaint Streets.  A gazebo built “by the community, for the community” in 1976 has served as a sight for weddings, picnics, organization meetings and la live manger scene at Christmas.  This park also serves as a well known county landmark with a memorial to local veterans of World War I in 1919 and rededicated to all veterans of all conflicts in the late 1980’s.
